Common Projects has established themselves firmly in the market as a no-nonsense, high-quality footwear brand with an emphasis on clean materials and sleek aesthetics. Accordingly, one wouldn’t expect a duck boot to be a silhouette that the brand would be ballsy enough to tackle, considering it’s about as chunky and ugly a model as you can get to work with. Not surprisingly, however, not only did Common Projects take on the duck boot, but they also did so successfully. Managing to streamline the shoe’s iconic looks without losing their heritage, Common Projects went on to upholster their take on the kicks in a chic and sumptuous all-black grain leather. Job well done. Fans can get them now for $570 over at SSENSE.
